Windows "Microsoft's communications chief has a tough job these days, and with Windows 8 is under attack from all sides he's bravely called for a return to the center and a less partisan conversation about the new OS. There's just one problem: The periodicals heโ€™s called out for engaging in 'sensationalism and hyperbole' are in fact right about Microsoft's strategy. And ignoring that is the real problem."

Well the truth is sales of windows isn't actually down, they are actually the same as windows 7, apples to apples, and windows 7 was huge hit apparently...

However negativity is up, because change == consternation. Ms will make a few minor changes, start-button-bitmap and the all will be good apparently, more touch gizmos will be released and happiness will resume.... ๐Ÿ˜Œ
